Rolling Stone - 9/6/69, p.28
"...[Harpo's] warm, infectious and good-natured approach comes over with great effectiveness....a very pleasant (and often more than that) collection of immaculately played modern blues which Slim's warm personality animates delightfully... "
Personnel: Slim Harpo (vocals, guitar, harmonica).
Recording information: Crowley, LA (03/1957-??/1967); Memphis, TN (03/1957-??/1967); Nashville, TN (03/1957-??/1967); New Orleans, LA (03/1957-??/1967).
There have been many Slim Harpo best-ofs available over the years, some frustratingly incomplete. This one gets all the chart hits together with several of the obscure singles like "Wonderin' and Worryin'," "Strange Love," "One More Day," and "You'll Be Sorry One Day," along with album tracks like "Snoopin' Around" and "Blues Hangover." Transfers are clean and exemplary, and this makes as good an introduction into his music as any currently available. ~ Cub Koda
